Our Specific Duties
We have two Specific Duties under the 2010 Equality Act:
To publish information to demonstrate our compliance with the general duty to promote equality
To prepare and publish one or more equality objectives
We have therefore prepared the Equality Duty Statements and Objectives document to show what we do to promote equality of opportunity and highlight the equality objectives we have prepared.
Links to additional information available on our school website are provided. Other information can be obtained by contacting staff, as indicated.
Advance equality of opportunity for boys, summer born and pupil premium children by improving the attainment of these groups
Advance equality of opportunity to increase participation in the extended life of the school by pupils and families who are at present under represented
Improve attendance rates by working with parents of certain groups of children whose poor attendance has a detrimental impact on their progress
Foster children’s confidence through broadening children’s understanding and appreciation of diversity and developing good relations between different cultural groups.
These objectives were chosen as part of the focus on improving attainment for all, with the particular groups chosen showing weaknesses in comparison to other groups from school data. The staff have also recognised that children’s aspirations and confidence are sometimes limited through fear of the unknown and that this has to be addressed by the school through the curriculum and experiences offered.
